Sun-Dried Purple Buds Wild Pu-erh Tea Varietal - Spring 2018
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
These little purple buds come from the "ye sheng" varietal of camellia tea trees which grow wild in tropical Dehong. These sun-dried buds are in a very limited supply and are in high demand among pu-erh tea connoisseurs due to their richness and complexity! They have a fresh and fruity flavor similar to other varietals of sun-dried buds, but they also have a deep and robust aroma and aftertaste which are very reflective of their "ye sheng" origins!
These are the sweet type, quite a bit different from last year's bitter varietal of Purple Buds.
